T-Mobile Axes Data Overage Fees, Throttles Speeds Instead

You must be one heck of a power user if you’re using your phone or data stick on any carrier and regularly hitting well over 5GB of data usage per month. And how about those overage fees? We’re sure that it could cause a little stinging pain in the chest when you realize just how much it costs after the fact. Luckily, and yet not so luckily, T-Mobile has come up with some kind of solution. If you exceed 5GB of data usage on your laptop’s data stick or your smart phone, instead of charging you overage fees, T-Mobile will simply slow down your data speeds. How much slower we don’t know but it’s better than 20 cents per MB, which we calculated as $23 for a Hulu episode.
